2022 German Development Economics Conference

The annual conference on 9-10 June 2022 hosted by the University of Hohenheim brings together international scholars and researchers of development economics and neighboring fields. Plenary sessions with keynote speakers, parallel sessions with contributed papers, and poster sessions will reflect the current state of research in development economics and provide a forum for exchange for researchers and practitioners. The conference is planned as a physical meeting, yet if the pandemic situation does not allow such a meeting, the organizers may switch to a fully or partially online format. If the meeting is held physically, participants will need a proof of vaccination or recovery or a negative test result.
